I should have mentioned I did try the driver uninstall program in the Canon software. It said it was uninstalling (something) but it didn't change anything. No, maybe it's no longer true but, from...

Sheesh. 1Password it is I guess. As Malwarebytes was scanning the B-Folders installer, I noticed several java components. So that rules that out. Don't want Java if I don't need it. And I don't.

Okay, that's set now. And also thanks for steering me to CCCleaner. Now my only naggy issue is the unused items in msconfig and I'm going to save that for another day.
